Menu Plan Monday - 5/28/12

Happy Tuesday, everyone. Being that yesterday was a holiday surely you will forgive me for being a day late with my menu. Today while asking Ian whether he wanted Lemon Asparagus Pasta or Asparagus Noodle Stir-Fry, he told me that he "DID NOT WANT ASPARAGUS" That he was tired of it. I wanted to tell him that he was out of luck, because I will keep getting it as long as the farmer's market has it. My poor baby boy. Luckily for me Cai had three helpings and told me he wanted me to make it again. And Aiden had AT LEAST four helpings. Really the boy sat at the table for about 20 mins after everyone else was done still eating. I think he might grow soon, or is already. This week might get hairy as it's our first week without school. I did get to go shopping without kids though this morning. I have decided that every week I'm going to hire one of the youth at church to watch the boys for two hours for me to do my grocery shopping and anything else I may need/want to do. :) They boys loved this morning playing with their babysitter. So it made me happy that my plan will work. I'm never sure as we leave them with babysitters so rarely. Often having family (grandma, grandpa or their aunt) watch them. Slowly though I'm learning that they actually really enjoy having babysitters. It's nice for me. Next week though is Bible School. Meaning I'll only have Aiden at home in the mornings. Which actually works perfectly as I will be preparing for our two week Kansas trip. Ok enough random ramblings. Wish me luck this week. I'm sure we'll quickly find our rhythm. Or at least that is what I'm telling myself ;)

This weeks menu

Monday: Grilled Cheese and Ham sandwiches
I bought wheat and Gluten free bread from Kroger for our day at the lake, so we used that for our sandwiches. I normally make bread, but it was in the 90s here all weekend. Which is really hot for northern Indiana. Add to the fact we have an old house that doesn't cool well with an old stove that pores out heat like no other and I have no desire to turn on the oven at all. Ok end of rant.  
Tuesday: Asparagus Noodle Stir-Fry (adapted from Simply in Season Chicken Stir-Fry)
Wednesday: Sweet Potato Black Bean burritos (Simply in Season)
Thursday: Curry over rice
Friday: eat out- First Fridays downtown
Saturday: Three pea soup (Simply in Season)
Sunday: Popcorn?? Leftovers?? Other??
